Epsilon 3X/Specifications

Sample variety The automation option is suited for 51.5 mm PANalytical steel rings. Both pressed powder samples and fused beads can be measured. Other sample types are possible, on request. Operator intervention Ad-hoc samples can be measured by unlocking the cabinet door. The lid of Epsilon 3 will open after the previous measurement is finished. When the cabinet door is open, all moving components are locked to prevent from collisions with the operator. Samples are measured manually without leaving the automation mode. Easy communication Multiple communication possibilities are available for data delivery to LIMS systems via PANalytical’s Universal Automation Interface (UAI) software. Very limited physical connections are required and measurement data from Epsilon 3 software is transmitted automatically in ASCII code for further processing. Fast analytical response It only takes 30 seconds from the time the sample reaches the end of the conveyer belt to the time when the sample is located in the measuring position of the Epsilon 3. With a typical measuring time of 5 to 8 minutes, the total throughput time of the method is less than 10 minutes per sample.

Epsilon 3X/Applications

Epsilon 3X handles a wide variety of sample types, including solids, pressed and loose powders, liquids and filters. It performs non-destructive quantitative analysis of elements from sodium (F) to americium (Am), in concentrations from 100% down to ppm levels, on samples weighing anything from a few milligrams to kilograms. This makes the Epsilon 3X a cost-effective and viable alternative to conventional systems for a wide variety of industries, including: cement production, mining, mineral beneficiation, iron, steel and non-ferrous metals, petroleum and petrochemicals, polymers and related industries, glass production, forensics, pharmaceuticals, healthcare products, environmental, RoHS, food and cosmetics.
